[Ed. – That was during his 10-month sentence for trying to join ISIS in Syria — before he was released to house arrest, where his electronic ankle bracelet was turned off for several hours each morning. Any bets on when France figures out this isn’t working?]
Adel Kermiche, one of the terrorists that slit the throat of Father Jacques Hamel in a small town in northern France, recorded his plans to attack a church on the Telegram app:
“You take a knife, you go to a church, you make a carnage,” he said. “You slice two or three heads and it’s good. It’s over.”
Another thing. A “spiritual guide” further radicalized Kermiche in prison in 2015.
The government actually had Kermiche in prison for awhile in 2015 after he tried to travel to Syria. But prison only made him worse because of this “spiritual leader” he met:
“In prison with my sheikh,” Kermiche says. “He gave me ideas.”
He also said he shared the lessons with “other brothers” and even boasted that he shared a cell with the guide.
